Throwback Thursday is a meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk to share old favorite books rather than just the new shiny ones. This is a great idea to bring back to life some much-loved books. Please feel free to join in.
My choice for this week is:
Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult
On an icy winter night, a terrible accident forces a family divided to come together and make a fateful decision. Cara, once protected by her father, Luke, is tormented by a secret that nobody knows. Her brother, Edward, has secrets of his own. He has kept them hidden, but now they may come to light, and if they do, Cara will be devastated. Their mother, Georgie, was never able to compete with her ex-husband’s obsessions, and now, his fate hangs in the balance and in the hands of her children. With conflicting motivations and emotions, what will this family decide? And will they be able to live with that decision, after the truth has been revealed? What happens when the hope that should sustain a family is the very thing tearing it apart?
I remember that I bought this book the day it came out in 2012. I did not want to wait. I wanted to read it right away…
“Lone Wolf” does have mixed reviews, but I thought it was a great read. The story was interesting and I enjoyed learning about wolves, their packs, and life in the wild. As always, I appreciate the research this author puts into her novels.
This novel deals with some difficult issues. A family torn apart must come together after a tragedy and difficult decisions need to be made. A unique and well-written novel that made me think about my own moral beliefs. Gripping and emotional this story stayed with me long after I finished the last page.
This is another novel by Jodi Picoult that I would love to have time to read again.
